Have you heard of washing soda? I suspect that some of you have purchased it before to add a little oomph to your load of laundry. But what you may not know is that Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda has many amazing uses in your house beyond the laundry roomand its budget-friendly, too!

In fact, a large 56oz box sells for around $4 at Walmart, Amazon, and other retailers. Plus, you can currently score a $0.75 off printable coupon for Super Washing Soda on the Arm & Hammer website!

Once youve got your box, here are 5 of my favorite ways to use this magic powder in your home!

1. Boost your laundry.

Kick the cleaning power of your regular laundry detergent into high gear by adding 1/2 cup (or more) of Super Washing Soda to a load of extra dirty laundry! Read more about using washing soda to keep sheets white without bleach.

2. Clean dirty pots, pans, & baking sheets.

I hate scrubbing crusted-on burnt pots and pans! Luckily, Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda handles these caked-on messes like a champ! Ive found that the easiest method is to add boiling water along with a few spoonfuls of washing soda and a squirt of dish soap to the dirty pan.

Leave it to soak until the water has cooled. Then scrub. Repeat if needed. Please note that Washing Soda is not recommended for aluminum cookware.

3. Brighten dingy grout.

Avoid the use of bleach and use Super Washing Soda to clean your grout instead! Make a paste of washing soda and water. Dip a bristle cleaning brush (or toothbrush) into the mixture and scrub.

It will bring new life to old, grimy grout without the use of icky chemicals (especially if you have an old Clarisonic laying around!)! And while youre at it, this is also a great way to polish tile, too!

4. Get rid of unwanted pests.

Combat annoying whiteflies and mites with a solution of 1/2 cup Super Washing Soda to two gallons of water. Then just mist the solution on your plants and trees as needed. For powdery mildew, try a solution of 1/4 cup washing soda, one cup milk, and one gallon of water.

5. Make stinky shoes smell better.

Foot odor powders and sprays can get pretty spendy and they dont always work either. For a budget-friendly option, try a healthy sprinkle of Super Washing Soda inside stinky sneakers. Just be sure to shake out the excess before you put them back on.

*I would avoid this method for sock-less shoes, as washing soda may irritate the skin.
